Streets of Gold Leadership Program
Developing "Good News Leaders"
We equip our poor and homeless Super Stars to become Good News Leaders for their peers on the street and community.
They receive encouragement and up-to-date social service information for themselves and then they share the information with their peers on the street. "The homeless are reaching the homeless."
Many of our participants suffer from sickness, mental illness, substance abuse and chronic homelessness. Workshops are held the 2nd Wednesday of each month at a local restaurant. They also learn Inspirational Life Lessons to improve their coping abilities that help them to reach their life plans and goals. Our participants register
from the park at the Once-A-Month Church which reaches out to the poor and homeless in central Phoenix.
When you Become a Gold or Prime Sponsor, you are giving support to this program.
We need to raise $15,000 and your donations will be helping the Streets of Gold Leadership Program to continue equipping the poor and homeless in reaching their plans and goals. They are becoming Good News Leaders by helping their peers on the street with knowledge of community resources and words of encouragement. "When you give to the programs for our poor and homeless Super Stars, God promises to multiply it back to you.

Streets of Gold Leadership Program Awards Celebration 2013
On Wednesday, December 11, 2013, Wendi and Limoz Arizona of Scottsdale donated a Stretch Hummer Limo for our top 14 participants. They were picked up at the Margaret T. Hance Park and arrived at our event at the Golden Corral Buffet in west Phoenix! See more pictures on our Current Event page.
One of our participants responded: "Thank you for the awesome drive and Limo! It's always gonna be a memory I will live with forever. God bless you."
We inspire our participants to a higher sense of self-esteem and value to their community in spite of living in poverty. When they arrive with us at the Streets of Gold Leadership Program workshops their "will to live" is very low. Their motivation for job search
and community resources is nearly depleted. They have received so many "no's," that they have quit trying. As they participate
in listening to the Inspirational Life Lessons and receive up-to-date community resources, their hope is restored in themselves and their ability to reach their plans and goals toward healing and self-sufficiency.
We empower participants to transform their own lives and their communities. As their lives are being restored, they are instructed to share what they have learned with their peers on the street. The success of the Streets of Gold Leadership Program continues to multiply through them.
